So for today, I'll be sharing this NOTD that is inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest. I really think Pinterest is an awesome place to gain inspirations! People are pinning stuffs from all over the world! Now, ain't that wonderful?
Here is what the card look like :
For this look I have used the cloud manicure tutorial by Nailside (if you haven't check out her blog, please do! You won't regret!). I have simplified the laces that was inspired by the card. Well, my nail plates aren't broad, therefore, I pretty much have quite a limited space to work with and a lot of frustrations to deal with. I do, however, really love how these nails turn out! But, I really dislike how my top coat is bubbling >:(
I'm using Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri Anti Chip Top Coat. Its great in many ways. It doesn't smear the designs, true to its usefulness (dry to touch in 30secs. not dried completely, but dry enough that you can touch and it won't smear). It also helped in drying some of my glitter/normal polishes faster than usual. And super glossy! Just that, if I blob too much it tends to bubble. Blob a little less, it dries too fast. As in, before I'm able to apply a full coverage on the nail. I have of course, known of Seche Vite Top Coat but the stated harmful chemicals in it refrains me from buying (do they bubble too?).
Is there any way to apply a fast drying top coat effectively without the bubbles forming? Anyway, I hope you guys like the Vintage Lace Manicure. Have a fabulous weekend!
